From Sunday Post dated 24 May 2009...................

Gravestone of Sergeant Colin Spiers disappeared from Kirkintilloch's Auld Aisle Cemetery. (We don't seem to have it on the project). He was 29 and serving with A&SH when he took his own life in 1999. It was a polished slab lying on supports at an angle and included a photo of him in uniform.

I have the article so I can scan and post or mail if wanted.

I will refrain from putting my personal thoughts - I would probably be arrested for them Evil or Very Mad

I hope this isn't the updated version of nicking DMP's?

I find it utterly sickening that anyone would even seriously consider stealing a gravestone.

It really beggar's belief. Why?

Paul can you scan or photograph the article for us
